Walnuts Nutrition: A Great Source of Plant Based Protein

Walnuts give us extra nutrition, crunch and taste to any meal. Because of the higher content of omega-three acids, they are typically considered to be an important food source. When compared with other nuts, the walnuts are producing much higher amounts of the omega 3 acids. These fatty acids can't be made naturally by our bodies and this simple fact is what makes a walnut the optimal source for omega-3 acids. Within this article we'll be pointing out some of the nutrition facts of the walnut.
